New Affordable Housing Residential Apartment Building, Croydon for Amethyst Property Holdings Ltd.
Design of a part three/four-storey residential building comprising of eleven one, two and three-bedroom flats from feasibility through to successful Planning Approval.
The massing of the building sits comfortably within the streetscape and is subservient to the neighbouring five-storey high-rise buildings. The flats were arranged to follow the existing building footprint and extend to the northern boundary of the site.
The design included a flat on the ground floor which could be easily adapted to a fully-accessible wheelchair unit and associated car parking, cycle, refuse storage facilities and areas of solar/photovoltaic panels.
RKG worked closely with the Croydon Borough Planning Department Urban Design Officer to create a scheme that achieved a positive ‘delegated decision’. Careful consideration was given to the design of the doors, windows and roof line.
